Gamescom Asia 2023's Entertainment Zone To Shift To Physical Format (19 to 22 October 2023)

Gamescom Asia has officially announced their 2023 show dates! The premiere gaming convention in South-East Asia will run for 4 days, from 19 – 22 October 2023.

Last year, gaming fans from the region were extremely disappointed to learn that the Entertainment Zone (B2C) was only held virtually through 2 livestreamed shows. Despite that, Gamecom Asia 2022's Trade Zone hosted 88 exhibitors and sponsors, and received over 3,200 trade visitors from about 70 countries.

For this year's event, Gamescom Asia's organiser Koelnmesse Singapore has proclaimed that the Entertainment Zone segment will open its doors to a physical format. After all, Covid-19 multi-ministry task force has recently announced that Red Dot Island's Dorscon level will be lowered to Green. This signifies that the health risk of the Covid-19 disease is now considered mild on the island. Moreover, mask-wearing while on public transport is no longer mandatory. (YAY!)

Red Dot Diva is really looking forward to what Gamescom Asia's has in store for the Entertainment Zone. She attended the 2022 show to check out the various booths and some of the games on display. But, without the colourful cosplayers roaming the show floor, on-site gaming competitions, and screams of excited fans testing new games, the convention lacked spark and buzzy excitement.

With the Entertainment Zone back in action, Gamescom Asia 2023 is gearing up to attract over 150 exhibitors and more than 30,000 visitors from Asia Pacific and beyond.

If you are in the gaming industry and are considering to participate in the 2023 event, you can get an early bird preferential rate when you reserve your spot before 19 May 2023. Here is the link to the application form -

Or, perhaps you might want to be a speaker and share your ideas or knowledge at Gamescom Asia 2023. The organisers are also looking for new speakers to share their expertise and experience about the gaming industry. You can sign up as a speaker through the application form found at this link:

From the sneak peek schedule shared by Gamescom Asia, their flagship online shows PRIMETIME and STUDIO will still be aired on various social media channels, so that gaming fans from all over the world can still get the dibs of what is happening on site.

With a few more months to the region's gaming festival, Red Dot Diva is sure that more interesting announcements are on its way. To keep up with the news, remember to subscribe to Gamescom Asia's mailing list here:
